Green urges West Ham fans to back Curbishley

Robert Green has urged West Ham fans to stick with under-fire boss Alan Curbishley despite seeing their side crash to their third successive 4-0 Premier League defeat.

"It won't help to turn on the manager,' says keeper Green.

Green sympathises with fans who walked out before the end of the game, but feels they should remember the job Curbishley did in helping to keep them in the top flight last season.

Green said: "I don't think it would help anyone. You can understand the frustration and the disappointment with the performances that have been put in. It hurt us because two out of the three came against London rivals. It is not what you associate with West Ham United, losing games like that.

"The lads are bitterly disappointed. We played Chelsea last week and it is disappointing when you turn around and are playing the last 20 minutes to half a crowd.

"We played against Tottenham this weekend and you look towards the West Ham fans with five minutes to go and it is half full, but rightly so. People vote with their feet and it is disappointing for everyone. It has been a horrific week and everyone will get flak for it. We are under no illusions about that.

But we are in 10th place and it is a massive step in the right direction from where we were last year. We can go and do something about that until the end of the season."
